The floating bridge is closed at Mud Creek due to wind damage

On November 1st 2019 the floating bridge over Mud Creek was damaged due to high winds. To ensure public safety, Parks Canada has closed this section of the trails at Jones Creek. Please note that there is now no connection between the lower Jones Creek Trail network (entered from the 1000 Islands Parkway) and the north trail (entered from County Road 5). Other trails at Jones Creek remain open, however the trails are not maintained from Thanksgiving to Victoria Day weekend (October 15 to May 15, 2020).

Visitor safety is your responsibility during this season. Please exercise caution when exploring Thousand Islands National Park during the late fall and winter season when most facilities are closed and visitor services are reduced or not available.


Facility Status at Thousand Islands National Park

Like many parts of the St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario, significant flooding impacted the park in 2017 and many of the park’s docks were damaged beyond repair. The park is undertaking a multi-year process of building new docks so that boaters can continue to discover and enjoy the natural beauty of the islands.

Significant recapitalization efforts will continue. This work is influenced by factors such as weather conditions, in water work restrictions to protect spawning fish and nesting turtles, and availability of contractors.

We encourage boaters to plan their visit by reviewing updates to the status of docks at our maps page.


Visitors can also follow the park on Facebook, or on Twitter @TInationalpark.
